It's a pity this isn't documented anywhere; I'm going to have to guess:

It's not clear if SVN_SSH is supposed to be just the _name_ of the
program to run, or else is supposed to include _arguments_ to the
program. So since your method -- including arguments -- didn't work,
try setting SVN_SSH to just c:\putty\plink.exe (that's what I do, more
or less), and creating a PuTTY "session" named, say, mylinuxbox, which
contains the user name and host name. Then try checking out like this:

        svn co svn+ssh://mylinuxbox/repos/code junk

[F]reedom is kind of a hobby with me, and I have disposable
income that I'll spend to find out how to get people more of it.
